That’s a question I’ve asked myself many, many times. What is so engaging about looping and plunging yarn?
Knitting is, IMHO, a much more elegant pursuant. But knitting requires each hand to command a needle. It’s much more tiring. I guess I just like knitting’s country cousin.
What is going on here? My God! I’m breaking out in a sweat!
My mom knitted beautifully. I remember the circular needles, the short stabby needles (like in the pic). Sheesh. Markers and purposely dropped stitches. Took my breath away. I never got past “knit and purl”.
Oh, I have found, and ditched, very complex crochet patterns. I must be able to crochet and watch TV. Or chat with Mr. Nelson (hubby). Or do both. This is imperative.
As a little girl I think I crocheted some wonky Barbie clothes. They were a perfect compliment to my wonky hand-sewn Barbie clothes.
Crochet is just a thing, that’s all. It satisfies without demanding too much attention.
